It is our honor, on behalf of the Harvard Arab Alumni Association, the various Arab Student Organizations across campus, to welcome you all to the eighth annual Harvard Arab Weekend (HAW), taking place at Harvard University from the 6 – 9 of November, 2014.

As the largest pan-Arab conference in North America, the Harvard Arab Weekend has prided itself on showcasing a mosaic of perspectives and insights on the most pressing issues in the Arab world. In 2011, the Harvard Arab Weekend was commended by the White House as “The Premier Arab World Conference” in North America. This year, we strive to uphold our venerable tradition of engaging discourses and informative debates.

Conversations at HAW2014 will be enhanced by pigeonhole, an innovative service that facilitates live and dynamic discussion.
